Inside Asia Tours: Vietnam, Cambodia & Laos

Sunset Foodie Adventure In Vientiane

Get ready to get a true taste of Laos with an evening exploring the best food in Vientiane.

While its kerbside dining culture may not have the global reputation of neighbouring Thailand and Vietnam - Laos still has plenty to offer in the way of street food. Start the evening the local way by heading to a beer shop for a sundowner, sipping on a cold BeerLao as the sun sets over the Mekong River. Beer shops are popular post-work watering holes and the atmosphere is always enjoyable.

After dark, the street stalls fire up their grills and start cooking. Take a walk through Sihom, an area of small stalls selling cheap but tasty snacks. Wander from stall to stall stopping to taste items such Lao-style donuts, bowls of steaming noodles and pork meatball wraps.

Continue to nearby Ban Anou night market, the city's culinary hub. The market is a hive of activity in the evening with Vientiane's residents who come to dine with friends or family. Walk through the ends rows of food stalls and rub-elbows with the locals, sampling exotic snacks such as fried insects or classic Laos favourites like grilled pork skewers.

Having filled up on savoury treats, venture to a hidden sweets shop for dessert. The specialty here is ice cream and sticky rice, an oddly delicious combination.
